Tumblr releases official client for Android

Tumblr logoIf, like myself, you enjoy a bit of Tumbling in your spare time, then you might be interested to hear that the official Tumblr Android app has been released today. The free app lets you quickly post text, photos, video, audio to the microblogging site directly from your device. Handily, Tumblr for Android lets you simultaneously post to Twitter, too.

You can also use it to follow other users’ posts. These are displayed, along with your own offerings, in a neat timeline in the dashboard. The app lets you like and reblog posts from other people that you’re following, although it won’t let you reblog from strangers, annoyingly.

Although it’s fairly attractive and easy to use, the official Android Tumblr client is far from perfect. There are a few glitches that need some attention, such as some bugs with uploading videos and linking to photos. But it shows plenty of promise and could eventually make a more attractive alternative to Twitter for Android users. Check out my full review for more.
